Power Mode

Power Mode allows the character to have more damaging strikes, and deal block damage when opponent blocks. This mode also allows for SDMs to be performed (when life is flashing and power bar is full), link from regular moves to DMs and SDMs. Speed Mode

Speed Mode allows the character to apply quicker strikes, but only deals block damage with special moves. The Special Attack is one that must be blocked high. Supers can be linked from regular slashes but not moves, depending on the character. You can also link 3 b+A hits before a combo. Custom combos are available with low health and full meter (sdm requirements)

Overheads & Unblockables

Overheads and Unblockables are performed with BC. Overheads are available only in Speed mode where they are moves that must be blocked high, can be followed up with another attack or linked to a special move after the overhead lands, and usually has a knockdown effect. Unblockables are only available in Power Mode and are chargeable, take almost or half of your life when charged fully, cannot be followed up by any move, and usually cannot be cancelled out of. (NOTE: power mode only unblockables does not get introduced until Last Blade 2. on this iteration, both power and speed mode uses the overhead)

Air Blocking

Last Blade 2 has a simple system of airblocking that when jumping straight up or backwards you can block projectiles, anti-airs, aerial normal attacks, and ground special moves. The attacks you cannot block in airblocking are grounded normals and of course unblockable attacks.

Repelling and Recoveries

Similar to Street Fighter 3 parry or Garou's Just Defend, Repelling is a defensive system that allows parrying and countering, as well as recovering. Unlike Parrying or Just Defend however, Repellling is done with an action button "D" instead of a joystick motion. You are able to repel attacks on the ground. A down direction (1/2/3+D) a needed against low moves. Deflecting specials or dm’s require 6D or 3D. You cannot deflect in the air in last blade 1

Chain Combos Every character has their own form of chain combos but this following is a series of combos everyone is capable of:

b + A + A + A + B + f B/f C/df C A + B + C 2A 5B/2B 6C/3C/6B

Generally either A + B or b + A + A + A + B can cancel into a Special, DM, SDM, SSC
